Oh, Sweet Friday

Happy Friday, all! I’m excited to report that the end of this week finds me with a shiny new toy. Long gone are the days when Transformers and G.I. Joes were my trinkets of choice. These days, slick, new tools are what have me ogling the hardware store shelves, and Home Depot has become my Toys ‘R’ Us.

My trusty Black and Decker 18volt drill has lived a long and trusty life, but 12 years of constant recharging has finally taken it’s toll and left the ‘ol guy weak and lifeless. Enter the Milwaukee 12v Lithium Ion driver. Technology has come a long way, and this tough cookie is not only smaller (a perfect fit for my lady’s tiny hands and those awkward-to-reach angles), but the drill is actually more powerful than it’s predecessor. So imagine my excitement when Amazon saved the day and posted this bad boy up for $150 off of the retail price! I literally chased the UPS man down the street the day it shipped.

But enough about tools. As the unofficial end of summer boasts it’s last hurrah, we’ll be dining in Cincinnati, chowing on our favorite chili treat. Mmm, we heart you, Skyline. But we wonder what plans you have under your belt? Perhaps a big, fat barbecue (or have charred meats run their course for you)? Or does the extra weekend day give you that needed time to tie up those loose projects? So, which is it? Spill the (baked) beans. Har-har.

    I just got a new DeWalt drill and electric sander, and OH do I LOVE my new toys. :) So does the boyfriend. We had wondered about Milwaukee tools…have to keep them in mind for the future.ReplyCancel

    PS: since you guys share the stage at this blog, you might appreciate the humorous way in which my boyfriend has recently started sharing his side of things over at my blog:

    Ha! My husband was going through ad circulars just yesterday, and randomly looked up and said, “I do NOT need a cordless drill. I do not need a cordless drill.” He said it in the same tone I say, “I do NOT need a gelato.”ReplyCancel

    HA! My husband just walked by and saw this open and said, “12-volt Lithium?” Turns out it was the same drill!ReplyCancel
